Inhumanity of man a disgrace

"WE are led by the least of us," said the US writer Terence McKenna.

People are being killed at an alarming rate. IS is rampaging through the Middle East, people are dying in Gaza, blood is being shed in Ukraine – and these are just current news stories. The civil war is still raging in Syria, and Africa has so many different conflicts that you cannot keep up.

There is little value placed on human life. I think we may be a little arrogant to suggest that man is the most intelligent animal on the planet – mice seem to have more sense.
